politicians are afraid to lose the money they're getting paid to not talk about it. former michigan governor jennifer granholm knows full well the consequences of avoiding those debates. detroit still reeling from the financial crisis of '08. and as the governor argues the political talking points, whether it's on lower taxes or deregulations and markets simply ant the answer. jennifer granholm and her husband dan mullhern are authors of a new book, "governor's story: the fight for jobs and america's future." last i saw you, we were talking about the need to focus on efficiency rather than the fuel source debate as one example of the debates that america deserves that it does not get. explain to me how it is that we can get to having the debates that we all want to engage in, from efficiency and learning that health and jobs. >> dylan, the reason why we wrote this the book is because michigan's experience, really, what's happening to the nation now has happened to michigan over the past decade. everyone's scratching their heads about how to figure out how to create jobs in america in a globa

, thank you for calling. caller: i am concerned here in michigan with the layoffs, the $300 million deficit, and they appointed two emergency financial managers. there seems to be waste and fraud and abuse in accountability. i would like to see how no child left the chat -- no child left behind enforced in court and not left to the states. host: so your state is not up to the challenge? caller: that is correct. host: can you give us more specifics? caller: we have a lot of administrators, a superintendent, with the governor that has recently left office, she had controlled for years. they took out almost $1 billion but still we maintained a deficit. the should have file for bankruptcy protection and we would not be in this situation. it does not make sense for kids to go to school and not have supplies and toilet paper. it was a bunch of nonsense. host: the ranking member of the education committee had this to say about obama's decision when it came to the waivers. president obama's efforts represent a dramatic shift -- again, waivers being offered to states to come up with their ow
democrat in another 40 years. the next call is from michigan. caller: good morning. guest: good morning. caller: i want to thank you for hitting the topics right on the nail. we definitely need to go after the upper income people because, as in backing the great depression, it did two things. it made the wealthy get off the money. it also made them free of jobs. without a strong middle-class, this country is never going to survive. in michigan, we have a 10% unemployment rate. it is basically because of foreign trade policies that we have agreed to. we need to start taking care of our own in the united states. getting back to what the person said about president obama taking a vacation, back here in michigan, the legislature takes two months of treaty summertime. nobody needs to be taking two months off in the summertime. i want to cut short and by mr. parker for speaking the truth. guest: i want to respond if i may. i love that advertising campaign of imported from detroit. it shows this country has muscled. the state of michigan has muscle. the american car industry is coming back. lo

been very useful to democrats in michigan. in the auto industry. so, initially, you have this sort of sense of acquiescence by democrats that, all right, we don't normally offset emergency funding, but to get this through and to avoid another big fight, we're going to do it. but then democrats seemed to sense an opening. there was a newly combative attitude coming out of the white house thaw referred to earlier, and they decided to hold the line on their troops, and they voted against the c.r. in the house, sending the original, in the original vote it we want down to defeat. republicans rallied. they made cosmetic changed to get their people on board. and then the senate, which had been expected to sort of swallow whatever came over from the house, decide that had they would get their back up and that they would block, which they did. so now we're supposed to have a vote on the democrat i go version, which provides extra money in disaster relief without cutting the loan program or the other things that republicans threw in, but that's expected to fail as well. so over the weekend,

ri are in michigan on mackinaw island but before rick perry departed the sunshine state he spoke to a prayer breakfast of republican activists and made it clear thesis there has to be a kind of candidate not necessarily skilled in debating but firm in his conviction, casting himself as such one. listen to this. >> americans are looking for in a candidate, they are looking for an authentic principled leader. [ applause ] >> think about it. you have seen what happens when our country chooses leaders who emphasize words over deeds. >> . >> reporer: as i said earlier, a number of candidates had an opportunity to speak today. each of them making their pitch why they belong in the oval office but also making a pitch for whether they want their name bhecked off in this ballot. here is a little bit of the speech earlier today. >> when you cast your ballot at this straw poll, send washington on mechblg. they are ready for a problem solver, not another politician. they are ready for solutions. they ready for solutions. that is what the united states of america, the premium of ready for. se

dropped him at the university of michigan for debate camp for three weeks and thought he would be okay. wrong. he called me up two days later and felt dumb. he said the other kids at camp were far ahead of him and started yelling at me for not getting him in a better school. problem is, that he's already in the best school in our city. he says, i don't know what they're preparing us for but it's not college. my poor kid has discovered something we've known for years, not all school districts are created equal. there are at love factors for this, of course. but the one i find most telling is the correlation between poverty and academic achievement. according to the u.s. census bureau, grand rapids, michigan, has a 28.9% poverty rate amongst school age children. only 30% of students who take the michigan exam were proficient in math, 43% proficient in reading. when you look at the poorer cities in my state you'll find some numbers below 10%. conversely, the 10 wealthiest districts have scores in the mid 70s up to 90. how is that leaving no child behind? this correlation, not unique to mi

and in michigan rick snyder, new republican governor passed sweeping reforms that will affect every kid in the school system in detroit. this is something to me that the millennials get implicitly and i think we need to start really looking at mountaintops when we have the next opportunity which will be in the next presidential election cycle. the other issue that ranks highly is the environment. i argue in my book we need to make a strong case for conservative environmentalism. the republican party has a pretty good history of environmentalism. teddy roosevelt, richard nixon, we can talk about climate change and acknowledge that climate change is happening but is also an inexact science. we know the cover of newsweek in 1975 showed that the globe was going to freeze over. we can acknowledge and talk about it in a reasonable way without embracing the left's solutions which would be -- levee enormous tax burdens for energy consumption. and frankly only reduce carbon emissions in the united states by a minimal amount without touching in the end china. so i think the deal with conservative

this is a special part of the country for me. i actually can recall the big four carriers on lake michigan. nice to see them from time to time. they pulled iron from the north throughout the entire region. one that manufactured oils such as building cars, tractors, trucks and machinery, so did the ship errs, miners and support industries. as a result of the great lakes area, it it flourishes really was a good lesson in how we've come to learn to need each other. that is industry from the states and throughout interdependent. clearly, job retention and job creation are foremost in everyone's minds today. of our president, to the state capital, jobs are the most pressing need. i give you my view on this issue, speaking as the ceo for the company and i do serve on a number of our corporate boards. one of the ways we enhance the value of said 10 to our shareholders is too careful allocation of capital. so we must provide capital businesses that can escrow. the growth is either limited or declining. we have to make discipline investments. and generally, only the very best projects go forward. they're

of weekend straw poll votes. front-runner rick perry came in a distant second in both michigan and florida. mitt romney won the michigan straw poll. that's not particularly shocking since romney was born in michigan and his father was a michigan governor. the big surprise was in florida where underdog herman cain pulled off a stunning upset. cain got 37% of the vote in the presidency five straw poll. perry only got 15%. we'll talk it over in our "fair game" segment next hour. >>> one of two fullerton, california police officers charged with beating a homeless man to death entered a not guilty plea today. man well ramos is charged with second degree murder and involuntary manslaughter in connection with the july 5th death of 37-year-old kelly thomas. we've been following this case here on the show. prosecutors say the homeless man begged for his life as ramos and another officer tasered him an beat him. the judge has scheduled a november 4th pretile hearing for ramos. that is the same day as a scheduled hearing for the other defendant, who entered a not guilty plea last week. >>> back now t
